Motorcycling is undergoing a profound transformation in the United States. First off, it’s exploded. The number of motorcycles in use topped 12 million in 2018, 2 million more than in 2014, according to the Motorcycle Industry Council. Riders are older on average as retiring baby boomers and frustrated commuters heed the call of the open road. And more riders are women, now nearly one in five. What hasn’t changed much are the leading causes of motorcycle crashes, injuries and deaths: unsafe speed, poor weather/road conditions, no helmet, distracted driving/drivers, inexperience and the highest rate of alcohol impairment on the road. Let’s take a closer look. Helmets flat out save lives. So who’s riding motorcycles? And who is the most at risk for a crash? There are three groups that are changing motorcycle culture: As the boomer population of the United States ages, more older people are dying in motorcycle crashes. The 40-and-older age group made up 49% of motorcyclists killed in 2007 as compared to 54% of those killed in...More Information
In early 2018, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported an outbreak of E. coli found in romaine lettuce, which sickened nearly 200 people and killed five. Right before Thanksgiving, another outbreak caused the CDC to recall all romaine, fresh and bagged. In the fall, over 19 million pounds of ground beef were recalled in three separate salmonella outbreaks. Is our food out to get us? If you think you’re seeing more reports of foodborne illness these days, you’re right. So why are these reports increasing, and what can you do about it? Shift in Food Culture and Economy The boost in foodborne illness can be traced to one source: our changing food habits. New diets, a complex food economy and advanced technology are all part of the American food culture. Three key parts of how we consume food are causing more outbreaks: Healthy, easy eating. The deadliest illness offender? Produce. While food sickness is usually associated with tainted meat, it’s fruits and veggies that are the most often contaminated – especially greens like lettuce and...More Information
As the number of surgeries performed in these centers has risen into the millions, so have the risks of medical complications. A new joint investigation by USA TODAY and Kaiser Health News sheds light on centers plagued by poor oversight, unqualified or ill-equipped staff, and little to no accountability. The rising cost of health care in America is a big concern. Small, relatively routine surgeries that are performed in a hospital can greatly increase those costs. Thus, many patients are directed toward ambulatory or same-day surgery centers. In 1970, the first freestanding surgery center was started in Phoenix to combat rising health care costs and provide more convenient, timely care for patients. The number of ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) in the United States has exploded since, surpassing 5,600 today. Poor Training, Equipment and Procedures Endanger Patients Since 2013, more than 260 patients have died after “in-and-out” procedures at surgery centers across America. At Kandis Endoscopy Center in Arkansas, two people died and one suffered brain damage in the span of four months after...More Information
Pure and gentle enough for babies’ bottoms.A product mothers can trust.Made by a company that puts customers first. Company documents revealed that Johnson & Johnson knew about possible asbestos contamination in talc as far back as 1957. Generations of mothers know these are the advertising promises behind Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder, the talc product with a fragrance that is among the most recognizable in the world. But in 1999 it was a much different reality for Darlene Coker. The mother of two and manager of a massage school was dying from mesothelioma, a deadly lung cancer normally found in workers exposed to asbestos fibers while on the job. Darlene wanted to know how she could have contracted this deadly disease. The answer: the Johnson & Johnson baby powder she used on her daughters and sprinkled on herself all her life, according to a lawsuit Darlene filed against the health care giant. Darlene’s lawyers knew that talc, the key ingredient mined from the earth for baby powder, often occurs with...More Information
U.S. consumers spent about $20 billion on toys in 2017 with projections for a seven percent increase in sales for 2018. In short, toys are big business. The downside: a market flooded with toys that, in some cases, are not tested for safety. Fortunately for American toy buyers (and kids), the definitive annual toy safety survey from the U.S. Public Interest Research Group (U.S. PIRG) is here. For more than 30 years, the Trouble in Toyland report has identified toys on store shelves that pose potential safety hazards to children. You can download the report here. Key findings this year include: Toxic Slime: Several popular ‘slimes’ on the market have levels of boron that are 15 times the level recommended by the European Union. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, ingesting boron can cause nausea, vomiting, rashes and seizures.

When a doctor writes a prescription, most of us assume we’ll walk out of the pharmacy with the drug best suited for the diagnosis. But what if the doctor chose a new drug based on a big marketing push by the manufacturer? Or maybe it’s the other way around: Patients often request a particular brand-name drug after seeing hundreds of television ads with actors or well-known celebrities vouching for its effectiveness. So far in 2018, pharmaceutical companies have shelled out$2.8 billon to run direct-to-consumer television ads touting the benefits of around 70 prescription drugs. Between 2012 and 2016, the number of television ads for medications grew 65 percent as companies increasingly target the exploding and lucrative baby boomer market. The drug companies are not alone in playing the healthcare advertising sweepstakes. Hospitals are spending more than ever on advertising and, as with other products, that advertising is filled with lots of promises, says Tim Calkins, a professor of marketing at Northwestern University. “So a hospital can go out and...More Information
